This new player doesn't work with my iPod. What can I do to make it work I love this site but can't use it now so if anybody knows how I can make it work that would be great! Thanks

As of 12:00 am today, I can't easily play audio tracks from the archive with my ipod either, as I no longer have the option of using the old player. This has happened in one way or another every time archive has updated its player in the past, and it has always eventually been resolved, so I assume it will this time. But for now it's annoying. Accidentally, by flipping around with page-forward and -back buttons out of sheer frustration, I discovered that I can get a "play" (>) button to appear above the track list and it works, but I have to go to the previous page and then forward to the "present" page in order for this to happen, and sometimes this has to be done a few times to get it to work. As I usually listen to the archive via my ipod between 9 PM & 6 AM, when I'm away from my laptop, having to do this half awake in bed is kind of a pain. Is there anything I can update for this to be resolved, or is it something at your end? Thanks, you're awesome & I love you.

did it work prior to this weekend? that would have been with our prior jwplayer and html5 (certainly not flash or flowplayer).

how old is your iPod or what is the iOS version if it is a newer iPod?

Yes it worked with the old player and my iPod isn't even a year old so it wouldn't be the age of the iPod the software is what came with it. Thanks ~ Leif

Hi,
do you mean it doesn't auto-advance to next track?
does the first track play when you play? can you not even get that far?
or can you be a bit more specific than "doesn't work with my iPod"? 8-)

thx!

PS: fine on iPads and iPhones -- getting iPod proper later tonight for testing...

to be clear, you are talking about / having issues w/ advance to the next track after you can get a track playing right?

what works fine in that raw dir listing link above? there's no .m3u there, etc.

so is it still not working? iOS won't auto-advance (at least right now) to the next track if the media player is not in focus, unfortunately. I could have sworn it did *before*, so I will try to see if I can come up with a workaround...

Sorry... I was incorrect. It doesn't advance. But it does play the selected episode from the raw dir listing .mp3 file. I was so happy to at least do that i was confused as i had also tried my iPad and the player DOES work as it should there ( though the timeline button dragging is funky).

When i try to play a file with the player, the selected episode turns blue after a few seconds. The player "play" button turns into a "pause" button, but it doesn't start and the ounter never advances past 0:00. If i am playing another audio source, that source stops ( as it should ) after i select an episode in the archive player.

It didn't autoadvance if the player wasn't in focus, as i recall... And it did seem to be somewhat hit and miss even if it was in focus when the screen lock happened. It seemed like it would only autoadvance if the controls were visable in the player and the screen hadn't locked ( and sometimes it didn't lock for multiple episodes. I may be incorrect about how i remember it as i hadn't been using it more then a couple of weeks and mainly at night in bed so i usually am cutting some zzzz after an episode (if i make it that far) but usually woke up with Matt's voice in my ear, eager to put me back to sleep. ;)

OK, I've constructed a fairly experimental patch (but tested on ipad mini) going live now that should auto-advance when an iOS device is sleeping (still playing audio when goes to sleep) or the player (eg: Safari Mobile) is in the background.
(The JW folks will be getting back to me with any suggested adjustments or when this patch or similar might hit their release version. )

But at any rate, for our site, I think things should be working now for iOS!

Sorry for the delay in reply... Travel got in the way

I tried it... No joy... And then gave in to upgrading the OS since it was to x.1 i figured it was safe to jump in the water.

Thanks for trying...

BTW- it would be great if there was some way that the player kept track of which episodes you have heard.... With 482 Gunsomke episodes, it gets hard

auto-advance should now be working for iOS.
but if you're not getting even the first track to start playing, then we have another problem... 8-)

Is it possible to turn off the auto advance feature on an iPad? I mainly listen at night and prefer the player to stop after each episode so I don't drain the battery playing all through the night.

i have a 4th gen ipod device that i got for christmas 2012 specifically to use this site instead of the computer to listen to streaming greateful dead. it worked for a while (like dec and jan) and now it doesn't. there is no play button anymore. the problem is that before it only worked with the "old player" which i guess now would be the doubly old player. i don't get the play button to appear on the screen and when you tap on any individual file on the list it doesn't start to play.
please advise.
it also seems to load pages a lot more slowly.

thought i'd wait patiently while maybe the bugs got worked out. however, i'm still not having much success straming concerts on my i pod. i can play tunes when they are listed individually as mp3 files (for example, i can search under the steve kimock band and bring up only shows that have mp3 files and then click on them one at a time and play them.) that is not useful for stream only shows such as the dead. the play traingle button does not appear. also, if you click on the m3u file it starts to stream for awhile but then cuts out after about 10 minutes. this seems to have ebbn aproblem bfore because i saw others having the same difficulty in the forums ina round 2011.

also, another problem is that the speaker icon on the play bar only works as an on off/ mute switch where as before it used to work as a volume control. i can use the volume control on my computer's mixer, but even when i put it on as low as it goes, it's still too loud (depending what i'm aslo doing at the time).

thanks

partial answer -- for the volume control, I think you are talking about a PC not iPod at that point, and I think from what you say it's using the "flash plugin" route (maybe MSIE browser or an older browser).

For audio items, the volume control is a slider but only when using a newer browser that can use the "html5 route" (you can discern which it's using by right clicking -- the longer typical flash menu means flash plugin). Is your browser capable of playing .mp3 files?

yes, for the second part i wsa talking about streaming on a PC since (per the first part) the ipod isn't doing the job.

i think you are right about it depends on the browser because at work ( a new computer) if i hover over the speaker icon, the slider appears. at home that doesn't happen and that's a much older computer. i will try updating to ie 9.

thanks for the help.

Well it works now if you go and click the audio files under the player( individual files) but still nothing else works. And those are the same problems I had with mine as well. But like I said it works with the individual files. :)

thanks for trying that test page.

ok, this is the one that looks iphone-like but thinner/lighter/cooler, right? (nice taste! 8-)

I just brought up this page
http://archive.org/details/JohnMayer2010-03-06.DPA4021
on that device and everything was fine.
iOS devices don't allow autoplay in most circumstances -- so you have to click the play icon or click a track song name under the player to start it. once play has started, it will autoadvance to the next song.

can you let me know if that clears things up?
